Welcome to Laser Pointer Forums - discuss green laser pointers, blue laser pointers, and all types of lasers



Does laser safety goggles filter out the blue light wavelengths of LEDs?

You're doctor gave you sleeping pills then you better take them and stop being ridiculous about it
I got severe side effects of the sleeping pills. I want to sleep as I did before the society got light polluted. I don't want to use sleeping pills to be a part in the modern society. I may move to an uncultivated area of land to get rid of the light.

Problem solved:

It won’t solve the attention trolling problem, but blue wavelength light reduced!

incandescent ones [don't flicker]... While incandescent lights may vary slightly with the AC they never really turn off.


Oh yeah, smartass? How about we look it up.

flick·er
verb
(of light or a source of light) shine unsteadily; vary rapidly in brightness.



So stfu. See my link above for footage.

Actually it is fluorescent lights that flicker at 120 Hz,
Wrong again. This depends entirely on the ballast, NOT the type of lamp. Magnetic ballasts flicker, but electronic ballasts (basically everything built in the last 20 years, CFLs included) have a square wave drive and the minimal amount of variation is in the dozens of kHz.

You remember a time before artificial light? How goddamn old are you? :eek:

Yes, my dear friend, you played your own part in it back then. If only I had a virtual high voltage fly zapper for you being attracted to this thread to bug me on that fact... but then again, I'd get zapped too because right from the start I added my own input to this thread and now this too!



Edit: You know, bringing that up will likely attract more of the flies who were part of that back here again. For the most part, I've been happy with their absence. But then again, I just turned on the bug zapper, they might be attracted to the light :)

I've been enjoying watching this thread, and I decided to do a little experiment of my own.

Heres my computer monitor displaying full red, full green, and full blue, as well as a full white and full black area for reference.


Heres the same image through a pair of "blue blocking" computer glasses:



Not much difference. The white is slightly warmer now.


And finally the image viewed through a pair of OD6 445(Blue) laser safety glasses:



You can still seem some blue getting through, but not much.

What does it mean? I don't know. Wear a pair of OD6 glasses all day? It will definitely cut down on blue light drastically. Might get weird looks though.

If you want a cheap and easy way of blocking 100% of blue light, theres always these:


Or see a doctor. Because they're professionals who've spent their life with the goal of helping people.
